■ * 1 Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of April 6, 1904 Racing at Washington, D. C. Memphis, San Francisco and Los Angelas. None of the steeplechase riders at Banning can crow over the others so far. Five riders have won one race each. In the shipment of horses Frank Regan took from California to Aqueduct are two belonging to Caesar Young, who has confined his racing to the Pacific coast district in the past. They are Princess Titania and Cunard. The latter formerly raced in the East as the property of Green B. Morris. He was bred to a few mares this season, but his owner believes he can still win races. Albert Franklin, who trained Olefiant, the winner of the Tennessee Oaks in 1903, has arrived at Memphis from Nashville with a part of the string of J. G. Greener and Co., which includes four horses. Outwai is the candidate for the Tennessee Oaks this year. Those in charge of Franklin are the four-year old Postmaster Wright, the three-year-old Ogawai, also in the Oaks, and the two year old Opal-anti. Little Woods, the two year-old Flambeau colt, which has won twice at Benning for W. L. Maupin, was purchased from the eminent Billy Garth of Charlottesville, Va., who got him as a gift horse. The youngster was originally purchased for 00 by Samuel Ross of the Columbia Stable at the sale of the Pequcat Stud yearlings in New York last summer and donated to Mr. Garth in recompense for a similar donation the year previous, which had panned out disappointingly.
